Running Backs / Tight Ends Coach
Coach Eekhoff started his career at Dordt University in 2015. Eekhoff played left tackle and was a three-year starter at Dordt, and appeared in several games his freshman year. Eekhoff helped Dordt to its three best years to date, including Dordt’s first ever winning season and first ever top-25 ranking in 2018. He earned honorable mention All-GPAC honors his sophomore and junior year, and first-team All-GPAC honors his senior year.
Eekhoff interned for the Defenders during the 2019 spring season and he has coached tight ends and running backs during this time. The 2021 season will be his third with the Defenders and he'll be coaching the offensive line.
